Welcome. Wax will, at best, completely prevent locking from happening. You may get some knots to form over the wax, but the parts where wax touches will not lock up. Wax is also a hydrocarbon. It will NEVER wash out in normal soap and water. It needs a detergent to wash it out. Detergents in soap are not hard to come by, bu most are very toxic, so you try to stay away from them.
Also, Palm rolling, if it creates any lasting knots, is destroying your hair quickly. But the damage isn'tnoticeablefor a while until your hair grow out and you can see how thin your rots are compared to the lock. By this point, the damage is almostirreversible. Check out my video on what palm rolling really does to you locks

You may get a little turned off at the shipping cost, but trust me, it's wort it. They ship in standard shipping boxes, so you can add 5-6 bars or bottles of soap, and the cost doesn't go up. Check out dreadlockshampoocom. They are outstanding.
Dr. Bronners is great, but in th UK, you probably have harder water. ANd Dr. B's doesn't rinse out well in hard water.
The Treseme isn't great because it leaves behind a residue. You don't want residue to build up in your hair. it weighs your locks down, makes them hard after a while, and can let mold and stuff grow in them.
You could always us Baking soda. It's called Bread Soda in Ireland. It might be the same in the UK, I'm not sure.
But if you use the BS, you'll have to boil your water first and pour off the pure water, leaving the minerals, that dissolve to the bottom, behind. it's not that hard to do. A little time consuming. But it works great.
If you go with that, let me or someone else know, so we can help you with the ratios of BS to water
Welcome. If you haven' dropped the crochet hook already, do it. Crochet needles are meant for crocheting wool, or other fibers. Not your hair. Crocheting is the absolute most damaging thing your can do to your hair. It is the farthest thing from natural.
And what kind of shampoo do you use? Not all natural or organic shampoos are good for locks
